Compression of agri-residues
High production of agriwastes and lack of cheap energy.
Production of pellets for renewable energy production.
The proposed solution is a series of physical and biological processes. Firstly, it starts by gathering all the biomass in the facilities and grinding it. Then drying it in a dram, covered without oxygen to produce anaerobic digestion and biogas. Later, the biomass, rich in lignin, is compressed, forming pellets for energy production.
Market deployment considerations
Financing is a barrier in Uganda and it's all majority at policy level with limited really implementation opportunities
No, little negative environmental impact, only short transportation to gather the biomass.
